ARRANGE PICKUP

With our newest update, patrons can use a web browser or MPPL app on their mobile device to pick up available hold items.

When notified a hold is available, let MPPL know you are coming to pick it by using your web browser or looking in the holds section of your app.  
 
No appointment slot is needed – just indicate you are on your way through the app, select a time frame, then notify staff you have arrived. Upon your arrival, indicate your parking spot, and we will bring out your materials. 

Need help? Contact Circulation by email at circulation@mppl.org or call 847-590-3624. Be prepared to provide your  name and  library card number. 

PARK + PICKUP 

If you can’t use the app to plan your contactless visit, and you have holds ready for you, come to the Main Library. Do not use the main entrance of the Main Library. To enter the parking garage: https://mppl.org/about-us/parking/.  

Park in any of the designated “Parking Lot Pickup” spots that are marked with numbers and signs.

Once you arrive in your spot, call the Parking Lot Pickup line at 847-590-3632 to let staff know you are here for your holds. You will need to provide us with your name.

It may take staff 10-15 minutes to collect, process, and deliver your material.
